Getting Started with Your Search

If you are dealing with post-storm repairs and need a new roof replacement or repairs on the spot, you’ll want to find a roofer fast. But not too fast. You still need to do your research. As you move forward, keep a notebook digitally or in paper form and store all your communications. This includes copies of quotes on a roof replacement, as well as any written estimates covering pricing and contact information for the roofing companies you reach out to.

Also, if you receive any business cards, coupons, or print ads, you want to tuck those into your notes. That way you can quickly review your notes and make a smarter, more efficient judgment when choosing the right roofer. If you have any temporary repairs, make sure to keep those receipts as well. This can be handy when filing any insurance information later on, and for managing your household expenses at the end of the year.

Choose a Licensed Contractor

Start by working with a licensed roofing contractor. Unfortunately, in today’s marketplace with a growing number of scam artists, you have to do more than just ask the company if they are licensed, certified and insured. You also need to verify the licensing for yourself and see if the company has performed up those standards.

In Georgia, you can verify that a company is licensed on the Georgia Secretary of State website. To be licensed, the company must have proof of both workers compensation and liability insurance. These are must-have prerequisites for anyone working on your home. If anyone doesn’t have these 2 insurance policies and an accident occurs, you could be liable for any injuries or problems that occur at your home.
After you’ve verified the license, it is a good idea to contact the roofer and ask some questions. That will give you a good feel for what your experience would be like working with that contractor. If you don’t have the time to make phone calls, another option is to read online reviews. This is often a great way to see the way the company actually treats its customers both verbally and how it responds to complaints in services or products.

Confidence in Your Final Decision
